Yummmmmy describes my meal. Coming from a very traditional Mexican family... The flavors were spot on and the molcajate contains everything you will find at a Mexican cook out. Cebollitas, nopales, chicken, shrimp, skirt steak, chorizo, rice, charro beans, refried beans and more...for only $25.00... that's a lot of food for the price... So make sure to tip well or buy drinks so this place stays in business!

Friendly waitress & yummy fresh food. Very slow & hard to not fill up on chips while waiting on your food. We were with friends so it was good. The food was amazing just don't go if in a hurry.

This was the second time I have eaten here. Both times were take out.
I asked for a recommendation and ended up with the pork carnitas. They were good and you get plenty of food. I think I could have made 2+ meals out of my order.

It comes with rice, refried beans, guacamole, lettuce and pico with 4 tortillas. Choice of flour or corn. You also get a small sack of chips and container of salsa.

I love their chips and salsa.

They do have a family and bar area for dine in.

The service was great, recommendation great and quick service. The prices are reasonable as well.
